In general... would vinyl versions of recently mastered audio also suffer from over compression? I suppose the answer would change as we worked our way back in time.

I have a decent turntable that isn't being used, and was contemplating getting vinyl versions of things like Metallica's Black Album, and even more recently mastered music if the audio is less "squashed" than the CD version.

I found this thread, but it covers a lot more than the one simple aspect I'm asking about.

"It depends." wink.gif

Of the handful of new(er) releases that I have on both vinyl and CD, most are pretty obviously from the same digitally-limited/brickwalled master (Lady Gaga's "The Fame", Depeche Mode's "Playing the Angel", Portishead's self-titled album).

The only one that has appreciably less compression on the vinyl (certainly visibly, and occasionally audibly) is Radiohead's "King of Limbs."
